Health First's $508M expansion plan moves forward

Health First's $508 million plan to build a new hospital and "wellness village" received the necessary approvals to move forward July 19 from Brevard (Fla.) County officials, according to a report from Florida Today. 

The new project will include medical offices, an education center, retail and restaurant space, a spa, a fitness center, a daycare center and a parking garage. The seven-story, 120-bed hospital will replace the current 150-bed Cape Canaveral Hospital in Cocoa Beach, Fla., when the facility opens in 2025.

Chairman of the Merritt Island Redevelopment Agency, Marcus Herman, called Health First's project "a very exciting plan" that is "simply amazing" and will be "a game-changer for the area" during County Commission public comment on July 19. 

About 1,000 people will work at the new facility.
